Browns' Tripp arrested on burglary charges

The SportsXchange

Cleveland Browns backup defensive tackle Kiante Tripp was in jail in Atlanta on Tuesday on a felony burglary charge, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

Tripp is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday, at which point his bail will be set.

"We are aware of the incident involving Kiante Tripp,'' Browns general manager Tom Heckert said in a statement. "We are currently gathering information related to it, and will not have any further comment at this time."

Tripp, 24, was arrested along with two others Sunday afternoon at an apartment in a suburb of Atlanta. Investigators told WAGA-TV in Atlanta that Tripp and the other two men were looking for a man and money that allegedly was stolen from them. They reportedly had guns when the alleged burglary occurred.

Tripp was signed to the Browns' practice squad last October and promoted to the active roster in November. He got into three games in 2011.
